  • Joint Evolution of Black Holes and Galaxiesby M. Colpi; V. Gorini; F. Haardt; U. Moschella

    CRC Press 2006; US$ 220.00

    Black holes are among the most mysterious objects that the human mind has been capable of imagining. As pure mathematical constructions, they are tools for exploiting the fundamental laws of physics. As astronomical sources, they are part of our cosmic landscape, warping space-time, coupled to the large-scale properties and life cycle of their host... more...

  • Observing and Measuring Visual Double Starsby Bob Argyle

    Springer London 2006; US$ 99.00

    Double stars are the rule, rather than the exception: our solar system, having a single sun, is in the minority. Orbiting satellites, ground-based observatories and interferometers have all helped discover many hundreds of new pairs - but this has left enormous numbers of wide, faint pairs under-observed or not observed at all. This is where amateur... more...

  • Star Clustersby L. Labhardt; B.W. Carney; B. Binggeli; W.E. Harris

    Springer Berlin Heidelberg 2006; US$ 159.00

    Star clusters are at the heart of astronomy, being key objects for our understanding of stellar evolution and galactic structure. Observations with the Hubble Space Telescope and other modern equipment have revealed fascinating new facts about these galactic building blocks. This book provides two comprehensive and up-to-date, pedagogically designed... more...

  • Star Clusters and How to Observe Themby Mark Allison

    Springer London 2006; Not Available

    ASTRONOMERS? OBSERVING GUIDES provide up-to-date information for amateur astronomers who want to know all about what it is they are observing. This is the basis of the first part of the book. The second part details observing techniques for practical astronomers, working with a range of different instruments. Star Clusters and How to Observe... more...

  • The Multinational History of Strasbourg Astronomical Observatoryby Andre HECK

    Springer Netherlands 2006; US$ 199.00

    Strasbourg Astronomical Observatory is quite an interesting place for historians: several changes of nationality between France and Germany, high-profile scientists having been based there, big projects born or installed in its walls, and so on. Most of the documents circulating on the history of the Observatory and on related matters have however... more...

  • Statistics of the Galaxy Distributionby Vicent J. Martinez; Enn Saar

    CRC Press 2001; US$ 172.95

    Over the last decade, statisticians have developed new statistical tools in the field of spatial point processes. At the same time, observational efforts have yielded a huge amount of new cosmological data to analyze. Although the main tools in astronomy for comparing theoretical results with observation are statistical, in recent years, cosmologists... more...

  • Cosmic Explosions in Three Dimensionsby Peter Höflich; Pawan Kumar; J. Craig Wheeler

    Cambridge University Press 2004; US$ 80.00

    Originally published in 2004, this volume marked the transition to a fresh paradigm in the study of stellar explosions. more...

  • Cosmic Catastrophesby J. Craig Wheeler

    Cambridge University Press 2007; US$ 36.00

    Fully updated second edition for undergraduate students in astronomy and astrophysics. more...

  • The Black Hole At The Center Of The Milky Wayby Andreas Eckart; Rainer Schödel; Christian Straubmeier

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2005; US$ 116.00

    Reviewing the fundamental instrumental techniques and current observational results, this book unveils the mysteries of the physical processes in the central parsec of our Milky Way: the super-massive black hole embedded in a central stellar cluster as well as the gas and dust in the circumnuclear region. The observations described cover the entire... more...

  • Modeling Black Hole Evaporationby Alessandro Fabbri

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2005; US$ 96.00

    The scope of this book is two-fold: the first part gives a fully detailed and pedagogical presentation of the Hawking effect and its physical implications, and the second discusses the backreaction problem, especially in connection with exactly solvable semiclassical models that describe analytically the black hole evaporation process. The book aims... more...
